I just installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 on an Asus VivoPC VM60 by temporarily disabling the Wireless Network setting in the BIOS. This stops the Grub Loader from aborting during installation. After the installation is complete, go back into the BIOS and turn the Wireless Network setting back ON. The wireless adapter will automatically be recognized and installed during the next boot up.
To enter BIOS, press the F2 or Del keys during power up.
In the BIOS, choose the ADVANCED screen and select Onboard Devices Configuration. Then select WLAN Controller and change the setting from Enable to Disable. To save the changes and exit, press F10.
